Actionable, Real-time Data Keeps Drilling On Plan
In drilling, the only constant is change. APS develops technologies that help accurately predict and measure the variables that can negatively impact drilling. Our systems are used to identify high temperatures, pressures and vibration. We measure subsurface formation properties and drilling parameters. In any environment, keep your drilling operation running on plan and on budget with SureDrill Optimizer.
The Return on Investment (ROI) of Tapping Into Big Data
Drilling measurement and logging data is constantly being collected from various sensors, software and surface systems. The challenge is making large volumes of data accessible and digestible to allow for real-time collaboration and decision-making − at the rigsite or from an operations center thousands of miles away.
Optimizer aggregates modeling, downhole and surface data for real time predictive, iterative drilling optimization. The SureDrill Optimizer System consists of:
APS’s software that performs structural, directional and critical speed analysis for optimal bottomhole assembly (BHA) design. Analyzing the BHA data helps to set tool build rate limits and analyze failures in minutes.
SureShot™ MWD System
APS’s advanced MWD system with rotary pulser provides real-time and recorded shock and vibration data from downhole. Vibration measurements include axial (up and down), lateral (sideways) and torsional or rotational, which identifies stick-slip.
Real-time Surface Data
Surface data is provided by the rig’s electronic data recorder (EDR) via wellsite information transfer standard (WITS) protocol that allows c ommunication and data sharing through a common data network for wellsite users.
